1 in 6 American Men Between
Ages 25-54 Are Not Working

Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 5/31/2014 5:27:19 AM

Startling charts from the Republicans on the Senate Budget Committee about male participation in the labor force, particularly men between the ages of 25-54:(Snip for chart)"There are currently 61.1 million American men in their prime working years, age 25–54. A staggering 1 in 8 such men are not in the labor force at all, meaning they are neither working nor looking for work. This is an all-time high dating back to when records were first kept in 1955. An additional 2.9 million men are in the labor force but not employed (i.e., they would work if they could find a

Given these statistics (1/6 is 16.6%), a 6.3% unemployment rate as recently reported by the news media sounds dubious at best.

This might sound racist by current standards, but I believe is backed by facts. Minority men in this prime age group are increasingly incapable of participating in an information based society that does not need their brawn. And the Whites are bring systematically cornered and targeted by the Socialist/feminist regime. The result is this chart.

The War on Poverty created the Service Economy which eliminated the Manufacturing Sector, which made Government handouts as lucrative as working at McDonald´s or Wal-Mart.
And of course, the labor jobs were gobbled up by illegals.

Hey, I´m getting the sense here that posters tut-tutting and tapping on their keyboards have no idea how hard it is for ALL men in ALL races out there right now. There are a lot of good, honest hard working white, black and brown men out there with families that doing anything they can to make a living.

#4 and #7 I don´t like your arrogance. Is your family, your friends and neighbors better off than they were 5 years ago? Do you know any family that has been affected by an economy deteriorating under the boot of a heavy handed government? I know many and the list seems to be growing daily.

It´s about time someone exposed this. You don´t get the true labor market picture from the monthly unemployment rate. Jobs for men in their prime are disappearing. Companies are hiring older workers. This should alarm everyone. This is not healthy for any society to have so many able bodied men out of the workforce. What is happening in the labor market should scare everyone.

Our government does not encourage work since it wants everyone dependent on them.

Big Business wants cheap labor and has been outsourcing. My former employer has reduced headcount in the United States from over 300K to less than 100K in the last 25 years. There overseas labor force has increased by a similar number. I planned accordingly and left when it looked very likely I would get tapped in the next few years. I did not need them anymore. I only ´retired´ from my employer. Since I do not need some rat race job, I will be very selective in my next job. Probably only part time.

Now they want to import cheap labor since outsourcing has proved problematic.

And this is the exact age group that forms coalitions and alliances that begin to agitate for change, usually radical state-based change. Just look around the world where young to middle age men have no work, no sense of value and the esteem that goes along with accomplishment.

This is dangerous. Combine these men with the professional community organizers that are in charge of our nation today and it spells big trouble. Eric Hoffer understood.

Is The TSA The Most Monstrously
Incompetent Agency In History?
The Federalist, by Daniel Payne    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/16/2014 5:28:28 AM     Post Reply
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has identified a massive new threat to domestic airline security. No, it’s not ISIS, Al Qaeda, or the Taliban. It’s the dead battery on your smartphone. Last week, TSA announced what it called “enhanced security measures” in which passengers will be required to power up their cell phones before boarding their flight. According to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, TSA has “assesse[d] the global threat environment and reevaluate[d] the measures we take to promote aviation security.” Your cell phone is evidently part of a “global threat environment,” and so it must be turned on in order

Report: Deficit To Soon Skyrocket
To Historic World War II Heights

The Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) latest report says that although the federal deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama era, in the near future, it is expected to skyrocket to World War II heights. The years between 2009 and 2012 saw the largest recorded federal government deficits since 1946, based on percentage of the economy. And although the White House also reported that the deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama administration, there is little reason for celebration. Currently, the amount of federal debt is exactly 74 percent of the economy, and if measures aren’t taken to reign

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

CNN chose to describe the recently detained Jose Antonio Vargas, longtime journalist for U.S. publications and legal citizen of the Philippines, as a “symbol of the immigration debate.” The news network aired his documentary, Undocumented, several times. At the heart of Vargas’s viewpoint — and CNN’s decision to refer to him as a symbol, as opposed to, say, a scofflaw — is the notion that it is unfair to deny citizenship to him, considering his circumstances. Vargas came to the United States from the Philippines when he was 12 and didn’t learn he was in the country illegally until he was

Flow of Central American immigrants

CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico – Mexico is promising to stem the flow of Central American migrants to the United States by tightening control at its notoriously porous Guatemalan border. But messages from the country´s top two leaders in little more than a week have provided few details on how. And the scene on the ground is business as usual. Dozens of Central Americans who paid $1.50 a head could be seen this week crossing the broad Suchiate River on improvised rafts of inner tubes and wooden boards, in full view of Mexican police on the shore and immigration agents posted on

Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

Millennials´ Political Views
Don´t Make Any Sense

Millennial politics is simple, really. Young people support big government, unless it costs any more money. They´re for smaller government, unless budget cuts scratch a program they´ve heard of. They´d like Washington to fix everything, just so long as it doesn´t run anything. That´s all from a new Reason Foundation poll surveying 2,000 young adults between the ages of 18 and 29. Millennials´ political views are, at best, in a stage of constant metamorphosis and, at worst, "totally incoherent," as Dylan Matthews puts it. It´s not just the Reason Foundation. In March, Pew came out with a similar survey of Millennial attitudes

The idea of pulling nearly all American troops out of Afghanistan in 2016 suddenly seems pretty lousy, after so much of Iraq has collapsed under a similar scenario. When President Obama announced his plan to leave Afghanistan by the end of 2016, U.S. intelligence said it could be done safely. Now, intelligence and military leaders are privately warning that the U.S. counterterrorism forces could be needed there for much longer. During the internal administration debate earlier this year over the way forward in Afghanistan, the CIA supported a plan to degrade al Qaeda to the point that America could withdraw

AUSTIN — A Southern heritage group defeated Texas on Monday, celebrating a court decision expected to force Texas to issue license plates adorned with the Confederate battle flag. A federal appeals panel ruled 2-1 that the Department of Motor Vehicles had violated the Sons of Confederate Veterans’ free speech rights and engaged in “viewpoint discrimination” when it rejected its specialty plate in 2011. The judgment rekindled a loud debate among those who say the symbol honors Confederate heritage and others who see it as racially offensive and hurtful.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
